What Is Safety?
We hear a lot about safety in our communities. We expect each other to behave safely, to behave so as not to endanger others. But what is safety? Activities and professions are all different and mandate varying specific conduct for safety’s sake. But there are some common threads for safety in whatever you do. It’s this simple: Be Responsible and Follow The Rules.
Whether you’re driving a car or manufacturing one, you should be responsible. You should consider the safety of others in the operation or design of the car. You should follow the rules, such as rules of the road, traffic codes, manufacturing guidelines or engineering data. Be responsible and follow the rules. That’s safety. Without it, you cost your neighbor and your community in unnecessary property damage or personal injury, medical expenses, wage loss, and taxes.
